~ Angels in our midst ~

"You either believe that nothing is a miracle,
or you believe
that EVERYTHING is a miracle."
                                                                      -Albert Einstein

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.  ~Michelangelo

I'm with Albert.
I believe that all of life is a miracle.
I think we are surrounded every day with all these tiny glimpses of the Divine,
that go mostly unnoticed
because we are too busy, too noisy.
Many times we are unable to see clearly in the moment
it is only as we look back over our shoulder
that we can realize that a chance encounter, or perhaps
that lucky coincidence
was something much bigger.
 I like to have Angels tucked into my decor to remind me.
I love their graceful form, with or without wings. :)

The library fairy is not technically an 'angel'  but her feelings would be very hurt if I left her out of this post. So let's you and I just wink wink and agree to include her here today.
And besides she's done such a wonderful job
of watching over the library for all these years.

some of the most beautiful examples are found in cemeteries; 
like this lovely 'grieving angel'

Hebrews 13:2
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
 for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

All God's angels come to us disguised.  
~James Russell Lowell

In fact sometimes they show up with 
chocolate pudding on their face;

Sometimes they look like this...............

 But more often than not, it is simply this................

Don't be so busy that you miss your miracle,
or miss the chance
to be someone else's miracle today. 


  1. So very true my friend. We need to slow down, stop, smell the roses, and be thankful of all of the wonderful miracles that are presented to us everyday!
